Yale - Yale 1.6 in. White Smart Cabinet Lock with Bluetooth connectivity. Good idea and app based control. Installation and app setup was straight forward (make sure you have good wifi signal). If battery dies it will automatically unlock unless you change app settings, so if battery died you will basically have to break into the cabinet. This lock is good for keeping out the honest people.

This is a great cabinet lock that allows me to lock my liquor cabinet from the wrong hands and adds for a cool hat trick for when I have friends over. Came nicely packaged and was easy enough to install. The quality seems high end and was easy enough to set up. Once set up, it works very well and the lock seems of good quality. Overall, if you are trying to secure a cabinet, highly recommend!

Interesting multi use lock. The lock is light weight which can mean easy to break or easy to install. It is both light weight and easy to install. The app was harder to install because I couldn’t locate a code so I had to call the help desk The help was 5 star easy to use with a short phone wait before the tech started helping me to hook up and lock.

A pretty cool addition to any smart home. One thing I would like to point out is, that without the bridge (not included) you need to be around the device to unlock or lock it otherwise it wont work. So if you want to lock or unlock this while not being home then buy the bridge. Installation was easy. I was actually able to get this to work on a drawer. I know it is made mainly for cabinets but can work on a drawer as well. I recommend using the 3M tape to get it in place but then definitely screw this in. The 3M tape will just rip and anyone will be able to open the drawer.

We’ve had Four children grow up in our home over the past 20 years and always used the manual plastic cabinet locks with successful outcomes. By the time they were old enough to figure out how to unlock the cabinets, they were advanced enough mentally to know not to get into the cabinet. That is until our Fourth child. The age came when he figured out the plastic manual locks, the mental capacity was not there though. We tried many ways to secure some cabinets, just the ones holding the food he devours when given the chance. These remedies made our cabinets look terrible with zip ties, and an assortment of manual locks. Then I saw this cabinet lock where our child couldn’t open it without an electric code. Great idea, it works well with the Yale Access and Apple home kit apps. Since the lock has been installed, the cabinet, and more importantly the contents in it, have been safe. It even works with Siri on our iPhones.
There are some drawbacks though which I will list in hopes the manufacturer takes them into consideration for future improvements.
The kit with mounting hardware and instructions is geared towards cabinets where the door and cabinet frame or flush. Our cabinets have a 1/4 inch space between the door and shelves. A longer plastic piece is included for this type of cabinet but the instructions in the box don’t cover it. In fact, they read that you can’t use the mounting template with the longer piece. Thankfully we disregarded that advice and still used the mounting template with success.
An extra regular size plastic piece is included, an extra longer plastic piece is not included though which would be nice to have.

I received this today and it’s very great quality and is going to work very well on our wine fridge. I wanted one for when our grandchildren spend the night with us. Most of them are teenagers now and I remember what we were like back then so it’s a safeguard. I like how it’s a smart lock so I can connect it to my phone or tablet whichever. Thanks HD for another great product!

Yale Smart Cabinet Lock SCL01-1 is really remarkable in that it is a solution for securing things like medicines, cleaning supplies and other things you would like a little control over. This is a must have for parents or Grandparents to have guarding their home. Keep your box, you will need the QR code off it. Install it first, plenty of helpful items are included to make that fast and easy. Setting the app up, keep in mind that you will get two security codes during setup to enter in Yale Connect the app. Pay attention to whether the code they send says email or text and you have to type the letters in individually into the app during setup. Once setup begins it will update the firmware. It can take several minutes. You name the location and you're done. The app setup is easy and it has a big green circle for open and a big red circle for lock controls when you are done. If you don't have the phone with you can wiggle your long finger into the cabinet and hit the button on top of the unit to open it. So it's still safe and convenient. This really gives me some peace of mind. It is a rugged little cube. I spent a lot of time opening and closing the lock. It is cool watching it work.

I’m all for the smart locks and devices and although I love the idea of this device I have some concerns about where to use it and what is the best application. I have some grandchildren that visit and I was considering this on my medicine cabinet or liquor cabinet. Because this works on a battery and only requires Bluetooth and not Wi-Fi to work made it a little more flexible, however, my wife brought up a few good points. What happens if the battery goes dead? After testing, by pulling the battery out, with it locked you cannot get it unlocked. If it is in the cabinet, there is no way to get to it without it open. However, this is not a deal breaker, it is just a consideration on how to install it and what your goal is. We are only planning on keeping the small ones out of things, but do not want to total child proof so instead of using screws to secure the latch portion, we will just use the two-sided tape fasteners that come included, this way in the event you didn’t see the low battery warning and it went dead you can still open the cabinet and pry off the latch without causing any damage. In fact, there are a lot of different options for install. The kit is very complete with everything you need to do a clean install no matter what your application is. Setting up the Yale Access app is simple and step by step. Naturally once you are past the connection, the device already needed a firmware update, but then you are good to go. Easy lock and unlock and it can be connected to HomeKit on an iPhone so you can use Siri for this operation. I attempted to connect the Yale Access app to my Samsung SmartThings, however, even though you can connect this service the cabinet lock does not work with SmartThings. Overall, we like the device we are just re-thinking where we will use it before we install it. It is definitely a neat little gadget. One odd thing I still have not figure out is, that it has an “Escape Button” to unlock the latch if someone is trapped in your cabinet. I am not sure who would fit in any of our cabinets, but at least if they do, they can press the button from the inside and get out!

A great idea, turned into a great product, does exactly what it should do. I was so happy to get this and be able to give it a try. It addresses a need, and does so using multiple available technologies to do so.
Before you begin using this, you will scratch your head much like me, wondering how this lock will work. It almost makes no sense when you first look at it and try figure it out. But realize the lock remains in the unlocked position until after it is connected, firmware updated, and you initiate a lock command. There is a small lever in the lock body that goes up when the lock command is given, and then the teeth of the latch will catch onto this and that is how it stays locked.
As for combining of technologies, first of all it is battery operated. Secondly, it uses bluetooth to connect to your phone. And it actually can do firmware updates to the lock, which seems hard to imagine with a battery operated small device such as this, but it does. You can purchase a WIFI control module that once programmed, can communicate the status via WIFI, and allow for remote control of the lock, via the internet and from anywhere your phone has data service. This is why I say multiple technologies. (NOTE: This lock is bluetooth only, if you want WIFI control, buy the package that includes the WIFI hub that allows for multiple devices to be able to be connected to WIFI - must be within fairly close proximity to the WIFI hub - like all the units are in the kitchen for example).
The lock is as secure as can be for a small cabinet locking device and will not keep out someone who is determined to get in, but will deter everyone else. Like most, we have medicine, cleaning supplies, sharp cooking knives, etc. that could be easily accessed by a child and that would be bad. Maybe it is to keep an elder from getting into the sharp knife or medicines. Or maybe it is to slow down or deter someone who wants to access something. You could use this on your closet door too, because there is an emergency release button on the unit, that glows in the dark, and then once pressed, will immediately unlock the lock. If using on a closet door, the occupant can still get out if they get locked in (auto-relook feature could allow this to happen). Very well thought out, and addresses safety by virtue of this emergency release, but also allows you to secure a door that otherwise might not be.
You'll need your smartphone with the app installed, and therein you will find a host of features that really work well. Things like auto-unlock when the battery gets low. (NOTE: It uses an odd sized lithium battery, not the CR123A we have become accustomed to, but a CR2 - you'll want to have a few of these on hand). Notifications for many things is a very powerful feature, such as locked, unlocked, by who, etc. It can also alert you of a failure to re-close the door and engage the lock. But also other lock features are in here too.
Integration with outside apps is a huge part of this, along with Homekit. I'm not one to get into alot of this app using another app kind of thing, but it can be done - you will need the WIFI bridge for this integration however. I had hoped for a locking schedule for example, within the Yale app, that would allow the lock to be locked during certain hours and days, based on my not being home. Or also, maybe a feature to allow locking to occur when I've left the area, and to unlock when I'm in the area with my phone. Just these things would have made it more usable for me, for my purposes. However, it has plenty of other things and probably can be done with the integration of other apps to interface with this. This is a very powerful platform, with lots of integration to lots of other programs. Don't take this lightly because it may have an easy way to do what it is you want it to do.
Bottom line here is that this is a unique and much needed (and long overdue) product to secure cabinets, and possibly a closet door. You'll want to know that this is much more advanced but yet simple too, if that is what you want. I don't know of any other product like this, from a trusted name like Yale. I feel good using this for my purposes, and I'm sure you will too.
